Creating a Simple Twitter Client with Silverlight and PHP

In his previous article, A Beginner’s Guide to Silverlight with PHP, author Jordan Knight talked about creating a web service in PHP and then consuming that service from Silverlight. In today’s tutorial, Jordan shows us how to create a twitter client in Silverlight, using the concepts he introduced us to last time.
